Health Days 2010 was a huge success. The Health Days Fun Run, for example, had 672 runners this year. That’s up from 504 last year. A far cry from the 34 that signed up the first year in 1997. The golf tournament raised over $4000 for Sunrise Elementary and over $1000 for the Library. Brooke Snow and her students took hundreds, even thousands of photographs and posted them online. The results of the Fun Run are also online. We’ve posted links to these websites. If you have other links, photos or other information you’d like to add, please submit them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Goose Girl production by the Smithfield Youth Theater had over 200 participants.
There are hundreds of photographs posted on Brooke Snow’s website:

Gary Fox, president of the Smithfield Chamber of Commerce, said the golf tournament was a big success in spite of the poor weather. “I had to go in and get a sweater at hole nine,” said Gary Fox. “The people in the shop said the wind chill was 19 degrees.” About an hour later, added Fox, the wind stopped blowing and the temperature raised to 54 degrees.
Fox thanked the golf tournament chairman, Bart Caley, and his assistant, Ken Carlson, for their hard work putting on the tournament. He also thanked all the sponsors and participants for their generosity.
